Husen was really efficient and attentive to what we requested. He even asked towards the end of the clean if we needed anything else done before heading off and he ended up cleaning the stairs in our house as well. Highly recommend

Local information about Islington

Islington is inner-London's most densely populated borough, with the 200,000 residents who call it home crammed into less than 6 square miles that extend from Crouch Hill in the north, to Farringdon in the South, Canonbury in the east and King's Cross in the west.

Islington incorporates the postcode areas N1, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N16, N19, EC1, EC2, NW5 and WC1 and is serviced by multiple tube and rail stations including Tufnell Park, Archway, Upper Holloway, Crouch Hill, Finsbury Park, Arsenal, Drayton Park, Holloway Road, Camden Road, Angel, Highbury & Islington, Canonbury, Caledonian Road & Barnsbury, Essex Road, Old Street and Farringdon.

Islington is known for its Victorian and Georgian townhouses set on communal garden squares. The housing stock also includes many flats in the form of converted terraces, warehouse conversions and modern new-build apartments.

Housekeep cleaned its first house in Islington in 2014, and there are now hundreds of experienced domestic cleaners available in the area, including in Clerkenwell, Pentonville and Mildmay.
